Default Mixer suggestions?

What do you guys recommend for a mixer to be used for a full band setup? Im looking to stay under 1K price point. Thanks

Mackie 1604VLZ is still a very viable mixer. New they're about $900. Or if you can find them used, the older Yamaha O1v digital console is even better - but I bought a used one for $750, the old silver ones, not the newer blue ones.

Does it need any digital connectivity? Do you need onboard effects? How many channels do you need?

As Bo mentioned, the Mackie VLZ-series is good stuff, and you should be able to find a 16-channel version within your price range.

Although it's a lot bigger and heavier than I would want to haul around, I picked up a '90s Ramsa WR-S4416S 16-channel/4-bus board for $300 from eBay. I use it in my home studio as the front end for my recording rig, and for PA duties during rehearsal sessions. I'm very pleased with it's sound quality.
